Storyline

The episode opens with Amy complaining to Rupert that she has too much to do [looking after their flat and typing up Rupert's notes on top of her job as an artist] and she's going on strike. Later, while Amy is talking to Rupert's literary agent, a fake telephone engineer calls and plants bugs in their flat. The next day, a girl calls at the flat to return Rupert's wallet after his pocket has been picked by her colleague, and they offer her a live-in au-pair job. She moves in and is caught by Amy late at night looking through Rupert's desk - for one of his novels to read, she claims. The next day, Amy discovers one of the bugs and the couple speculate that they are the victims of mistaken identity? After all, there is a strange man living in the flat below who looks, for all the world, like a white slave trader? Written by blithe-spirit

An easy going, fluffy start.
27 June 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I had never heard of Wilde Alliance until an advert popped up suggesting it, as a lover of mysteries and seventies series I expect to love it.

This first episode was a bit of an oddity, it sets the tone I guess, introducing the characters, what they do, their relationships etc. The plot on this opener is paper thin in truth, it doesn't even verge on any sort of crime, it's a whimsical, fluffy drama, albeit enjoyable and amusing.

I'd say the acting was acceptable, nobody in particular shines, and it's not exactly wooden, but I'm sure tomorrow I'd have forgotten almost everything....apart from the Triumph TR7, which looks fabulous.

Watchable start.
